Roughing It in The Bush chronicles Susanna Moodie’s harsh and often humorous experiences homesteading in the woods of Upper Canada. A frank and fascinating account of how one woman coped, not only with a new world, but with a new self, this unabridged text continues to justify the international sensation it caused when it was first published in 1852.

I enjoyed this book that Susanna Moodie wrote about her first years in Canada. She and her husband lived in the bush and had a hard life. It's very interesting if you like Canadian history. She misses her homeland a lot, but slowly learns to love Canada. Throughout the book there are poems written by Moodie and her husband. It's quite long, though, and took me a while to get through. I almost would have rather read some excerpts than the whole thing. Still, I recommend it if you are interested in Canadian history during the 1830s.
